How to start CUPS?

I have CUPS running on dogla (DFly box) and set the CUPS on chausie (Ubuntu 
box) to share the printer. It shows up on dogla's printer list on port 631. I 
tried to print to it from the command line; lp is not the CUPS lp but 
something else:

-bash-3.2$ man -t cp|lp -d hp
lpr: Unable to connect to /var/run/printer: No such file or directory
lpr: Check to see if the master 'lpd' process is running.
jobs queued, but cannot start daemon.

How do I set lp and lpq to be the ones that come with CUPS?
